 .NET 4.5 introduces special asynchronous behavior with the new async keyword.
  The async design is brilliant because much of the time your naïve instinct on what the code is doing is correct – or plenty close enough. But, you’re very unlikely to trust your instincts without a general understanding of what’s going on and sometimes you really need to see what’s happening behind the scenes. 
  This deeper understanding helps you manage the five complications of asynchronous programming: multiple requests, cancellation, exception management, progress reporting and timeouts. 
  Multiple requests can follow many patterns of simultaneous and sequential calls that may need to interact with the results of other operations. Timeouts, cancellation, and exceptions require early termination of the operation, generally require communication to the user, and might require interaction with other concurrent async operations.

Learn about all these patterns in this pragmatic deep dive into using async programming with .NET 4.5.
